Each team is working on it, it's just a question of when.

 

The Apple version of Adobe Media Encoder went into beta just recently (I think last week and available for download via Creative Cloud Desktop).  If you're encoding Apple ProRes frequently on an M1, start using it!  I needed to transcode a 45 minutes of MP4 screen recording (2560-by-1440 30fps 00:45:19:27)  to Apple ProRes422 LT.  The Intel version of Media Encoder (the current relase, version 15.0) did it in 38 mintues and 15 seconds.  The Apple version of Media Encoder (the beta, version 15.1) did it in 23 minutes and 30 seconds.  And they were runnig at the same time on an M1 Mac mini.  I'm super excited for everything to Apple native (well, at least After Effects, Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Illustrator , InDesign, Audition, Character Animator and Animate).

 

The Intel version of Photoshop is running well enough, but features/capabilities are missing.  I frequently create animated GIFs by improting ProRes QuickTime into PS and then exporting via Save for Web Legacy (which is still avaiable), but I had to go with Media Encoer instead as the MOV file could not be selected via PS's File > Open.  It was unexpected and a little disappointing, but it is what it is.

Just realized that I didn't respond in the main thread.  Reposting here.
